Water, Irrigation & Fire Meters

Mickie Service Company is the leading provider of commercial water line services in the greater Houston area.

In addition to expert installation service, we have experienced field management, knowledgeable permitting representatives, and highly trained office personnel to make your installation as simple as possible. We offer a full range of taps/meters solutions – ranging from tap-only (for those customers that will bond/permit/install) through turnkey (where we bond/permit/excavate/install/restore).

We also offer line stopping and insertion valve services which are very useful in many private site work situations (see municipal services for more information) as well as private unmetered fire line permitting and installation.

Commercial Hot Tap

Mickie Service Company has extensive experience in making taps from ¾" – 36" on PVC, Ductile Iron, Cast Iron, Asbestos-Cement (AC), Steel, HDPE, and CSC (Gifford Hill) mains. Our technicians have specialized expertise in "size-on-size" taps.

Mickie also provides municipal hot tapping service.

Commercial Domestic & Fire Meters

Meters 2" and smaller are classified as "small" and are placed in a small black meter box supplied by the municipality. 3" – 12" meters are classified as "large" – and are housed in concrete meter vault supplied by the contractor. Mickie Service fully bonds these jobs and provides detailed permitting process steps/documents requirements and submits necessary paperwork (provided by owner/engineer) to applicable City of Houston entities.

Mickie Service Company also provides residential fire & domestic water meter service.

Commercial Irrigation Meters

Irrigation meters are generally installed by teeing off the domestic meter service (when the domestic meter is 2" or smaller) or by tapping the domestic service line (when the domestic is 3" or larger). There are situations where a separate tap is made (irrigation meter is larger than domestic, irrigation “only” installation – e.g., Adopt-an-Esplanade, or proposed location of irrigation meter is away from location of domestic meter). Mickie Service fully bonds these jobs and provides detailed permitting process steps/documents requirements and submits necessary paperwork (provided by owner/engineer) to applicable City of Houston entities.

Mickie Service Company also provides residential irrigation water meter service.

Commercial Fire Lines

There are two separate components of an underground fireline. There is the Public Right-of-Way (from the tap to the property line) which is the jurisdiction of Public Works and the private fire line (from the property line to the building) which is the jurisdiction of the fire marshal. Mickie Service has the ability to both permit as well as install (and get inspected!) in both of these areas.
